Great little restaurant. It was just beside our hotel. It stays open at night! The service was great. We were greeted by two staff, one named Mudi. Ask for him! He asked where I was from and explained the food very thoroughly. Very friendly guy. He speaks decent English so there's no communication error. Highly recommended when you stay near... More

We spent hours walking around Rome late one evening and this was one of the few restaurants that stayed open until midnight. At first we took our seats outside, but after using the toilets, we discovered how nice the restaurant was inside. Deceivingly spacious and atmospheric. So we ate inside instead. In our party of four we shared 2 bottles... More

Handy bar if you're staying near the piazza del popolo but don't eat the food. Bland pizza and gristly carbonara. Staff are nice enough.

Walked up via Della Fontanella and need to sit and have a drink on a drizzly Friday evening and so we sat ourselves here. Not busy but we had to flag down staff to get us a drink. Average tasting Aperol Spritz for an above average price, but this is Rome so we accepted that. Toilets are downstairs so we... More

I had the chance to try the burger in this little cosy corner in the hearth of Rome and it was pretty great. the place is very small and crowded but the service was very quick and the staff was nice and smiley (not very common for Rome). The price fro the burger was pretty honest, the beer was definitely... More
